All around the world, people are disengaged with learning. We're living in an echo of the industrial revolution, where our schools are training up factory workers, when what we really need are creative and critical thinkers.

Think about how much time and resources go into encouraging adults to imagine, to be playful, to invent and ultimately to think like children again.

What if, instead of suppressing inventiveness and an instinctive desire to discover at school, we did things differently?

What if we changed the model of learning so that, rather than teaching obsolete skills like memorising lists, we raised thoughtful and compassionate global citizens?

To try to solve this, I set up a nature-first, curiosity-powered, live online school called AimHi. Our primary missions is to make world class live learning accessible to everyone.

A bonus thing: my friend Dr Aaron Thierry compiles a lot of excellent infographics about the climate and nature crisis here.
